Silly Lollipop

I love America, so don’t understand it wrong. I love the people. I love everything, but some things are just silly. And I just have to share them with you – have fun:

I wish sometimes, that there was a person who can explain me, why they call it shipping (=Versand) although there is not ship involved. Or why the zipper is on the other side…Why!? It makes it really difficult to buy a jacket, because you first feel ashamed because you are a German girl not being able to close a jacket and after a while it’s just annoying.
And do the American people want to demonstrate how much milk they can put in one package that it’s still possible to fill some of the milk in your bole without taking a bath in it!? One really obvious thing of Americans in, that they are really friendly, when you are for example in drive thru from Starbucks (everything has a drive thru, because the people don’t like to move). Although some people probably don’t care, how you are – they ask you! And when you drive away from Starbucks with your coffee ( don’t be afraid when the doors lock automatically when the car starts, that’s against people who want to hurt you in your car) on the super wide streets you see boys and girl and old people dancing, singing and holding signs with advertisement in the air…
Today is a very hot day and you turn your air conditioning in the car so cold, that you need to wear a jacket. Our next stop is the supermarket which is of course open on Sunday. But don’t forget you jacket! Although it’s outside way too hot to wear it, it is inside colder than in your car!
Next to the huge American flag is the shop. I don’t even know if you can call them shop, because they are as big as 3times Aldi and offer everything: from pizza to fruits to clothes to cosmetic to school supplies. If you are all done you go to pay – with credit card please! Nobody pays cash. You drive home (take care of 16 years old drivers!). Number 7352, 7354 …7356 there we go! (Never seen a number under 600). Now straight to my queen bed, cause tomorrow’s school.
It’s 6:40 a.m. and my alarm rings. Get up, Henrike, you don’t want to be too late for your first period, which starts on 8:27 a.m., besides on Wednesday – there is it 9:11 a.m.. Ok, to which class do I have to go??? Which teacher??? Which room??? Which building??? Ok wait…the woman gave me my schedule.  Today is Monday…so no late start. A A-Day, B-Day or C-Day??? An A-Day…that means first period is period 02. Thatt means “Yearbook”. That means Mrs. xxx. That means room C225. That means C-Building….CONFUSING!
School is easy, like almost every day. But it’s very interesting. For example when somebody says “Gesundheit” like “bless you”.  First I thought I cannot hear, but they actually speak GERMAN! Whatever…when you confront then with it, they say like: “Seriously???” or “Oh, I thought it’s an animal…”
Teacher: “…..Which country is it???” Student: “aaah…Europe!!!!”
